Just wanted to make sure of something, was losing some coolant and the dealer replaced the water pump...however since I have it back I noticed still getting a drip on the carport..so i crawled under car..and the Big Pulley at the bottom of the passenger side of the engine near the tire..is that the water pump? Im still getting some seepage from behind it.. you can see it seep, and drip onto the driveway. ?

Keep an eye on it; I would expect any excess seepage to stop once the new seals set. IIRC; the water pump is a bit higher and not behind the big pulley. I would take some pics of the seepage and if you need to take the vehicle back; you will have some evidence to help support your case

I don't know about the seal setting....but in any case, if sounds as though you still have a leak and need to call whomever did the repair.....if you trust them . It might just be as simple as an untorqued bolt, but maybe the seal got pinched and won't seal. I did a water pump on another vehicle and getting it to seal was troublesome.

They should make it right.

I would recommend contacting your local dealership again to have this issue addressed. I would also appreciate it if you could let me know how everything goes. Thank you.

I just had the Puddle on the Driveway.....I came to the forum and ...Oh Crap! It's the water pump on my 2008 Outlook. Already? at40,000 miles.....
Took it in to Edwards Chevrolet 280 just South of Birmingham AL.
They were AWESOME! Yep, it was the water pump.... and yep replaced under warranty in an hour!!!!!!!!!! You Rock!
The headlight recall was just as easy.... Ahhhh the new GM....where were you with my '78 Camaro water pump that cost $600 to install...lol
As my Mother in law just had $1800 worth of work on the vaunted Camry.
